SOUTH BEND, Ind.--- Lawmakers are considering big changes for those who keep pets in South Bend, and they're looking to get lots of feedback.

The suggested new rules include replacing laws for specific breeds with behavior based laws.

The new ordinance would also forbid tethering animals for an extended period of time.

Increased penalties for those who break the new laws would also be put into place.

A town hall will be held tonight to discuss all of the ideas.

It will be from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Martin Luther King Jr. Center on Linden St.

There will be a presentation and then a question and answer forum.
